The Fund collaborates with its sister Foundation, Edison Innovation Foundation, to run programs to promote the Edison Legacy.

A recent example is a newly created contest "Pitch Contest" where middle school and high school students (grades 6 to 12) create and submit their own inventions.

The Trustees will select 3 of the best submissions and invite them to come to the Edison Lab in West Orange, New Jersey to "Pitch" to a panel of judges.

The best invention and Pitch will be rewarded with prizes and offered the opportunity to be photographed sitting in Edison's original desk!
